And here is my card! I really really like! I wanted to make something special for this event and really glad for my card. It is sweet and I used only few colors here, so it looks even more interesting. Here is the sweet scene with the bunnies from Mama Elephant’s Pix’s Happy Holiday stamp set. I stamped and colored with Copic markers. With the gel pen I added some blinks and accents on the bunnies.

Next step was to create the background. I wanted to make the scene with the bunnies on the stage. So I used old MFT die Take the Stage (I think you can find it somewhere in stock maybe…). I die cut the details of the white card stock and sponged them with the blue inks.

Also I made the floor and the wall. For the floor I used my favorite Tim Holtz’s Wood Grain Background stamp. It is the most natural wood grain stamp I’ve even seen! And on the walls I stamped some light blue snowflakes, blended with blue inks and made the spots with white paint and old tooth brush. The last step was to add the sentiments, and the sweet card is ready!
